Easy, you don’t write one at all. Believe it or not, hiring managers are no longer interested in seeing the objective statement because it does a not-so-great job of describing why candidates are qualified for positions.

So then how do you tell managers why you’re applying? You can write a job target, career summary or both to highlight exactly what makes you qualified and how you can make a difference in the company. The mere fact that you’re applying is proof enough that are interested in the position, so there’s no need to state this in a boring objective.

Jessica Hernandez, President, CEO & Founder of Great Resumes Fast

Hi, I’m Jessica. I started this company back in 2008 after more than a decade directing hiring practices at Fortune 500 companies.

What started as a side hustle (before that was even a word!) helping friends of friends with their resumes has now grown into a company that serves hundreds of happy clients a year. But the personal touch? I’ve kept that.

You might have seen me featured as a resume expert in publications like Forbes, Fast Company, and Fortune. And in 2020, I was honored to be named as a LinkedIn Top Voice of the year!

I’m so glad you’re here, and I can’t wait to help you find your next perfect-fit position!
